TWO of Queensland's largest and most important dairy factories, an award-winning modernist style church, an art-deco civic centre and the former Kingaroy Council Chambers, have been entered in the Queensland Heritage Register.

Environment and Heritage Protection Minister Andrew Powell said the former Kingaroy Butter Factory, South Burnett Cooperative Dairy Factory, Shepherd Memorial Church of St Peter, Murgon Civic Centre and former Kingaroy Shire Council Chambers, are important to Queensland's history.
